Overview

In the past century there has been awareness of the importance of a global public health perspective in understanding the etiology, course and treatment of mental disorders. However, just recently there has been a focus on population science and with it an evidence-based call to improving public mental health in communities. Mental Health in Public Health synthesizes important topics in public health psychiatry that were discussed at the American Psychopathological Association (APPA) meeting in 2010. The book, like the APPA meeting, aims to bring advanced knowledge of the social and environmental risk factors for psychiatric disorders, as well as ideas for preventing them. Chapters are written by experts from around the world and include such public health concerns as Veteran's mental health, mental health disparities among minorities, causes of addictions, and mortality of these disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This wide-ranging collection of papers illuminates many aspects of mental health as a public health concern. Whether readers' interest is childhood or old age, the United States or the developing world, depression or schizophrenia, they will find something to interest and inform them. Particularly insightful are the "Presidential Perspectives" in which past presidents of APPA muse on what the future holds for psychiatry, in the context of public health. Medical education in the United States largely ignores public health. This book can help to open clinicians' eyes to the gains that can be made by taking a public health approach to some of the seemingly intractable problems of mental disorders worldwide." —- E. Jane Costello, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham NC

"Mental Health in Public Health is two books in one. Part 1 is a compilation of thoughtful chapters demonstrating the critical role that mental health plays in the public health of populations around the world. Each of the chapters is a variation and exposition on the theme that mental health and public health are two sides of the same coin. The value of this concept is shown from childhood to old age, from the healthy to the medically unhealthy, from populations living in peace to those exposed to the horrors of war, from low income populations and countries to wealthy populations and countries." — Evelyn J. Bromet, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, Stony Brook University, Putnam Hall-South Campus, Stony Brook, NY
